The Disney D23 convention is not far away and we have learned that The Force Awakens is going to be part of the two-hour long presentation by Walt Disney Studios’ Chairman Alan Horn. Now that The Force Awakens is going to be part of the presentation, nobody is sure if Rogue One will be discussed at all. There is a slew of special guests that are supposed to appear. Maybe Andy Serkis and Lupita Nyong’o will actually appear, since they have yet to be at any conventions. However, it’s all a guessing game right now.

Another huge event that is happening at D23 this year is Star Wars creator George Lucas will be honored. He will be given a Disney Legend Award, as well as six other Disney Legends. The award will be given during a presentation in the morning on Friday August 14th at 10:00am and it will be hosted by Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Bob Iger had this to say:

“The Disney Legend Award is our highest honor, and we are incredibly proud to recognize these eight talented individuals who have contributed so much to the world of entertainment and the Disney legacy.  The Disney Legend Award is our highest honor, and we are incredibly proud to recognize these eight talented individuals who have contributed so much to the world of entertainment and the Disney legacy.”

There is no information yet on whether George Lucas will actually be at the D23 Expo to receive the award. I am sure that all Star Wars fans hope to see him there.
